DYNAMITE SIGNS ALEX DE CAMPI TO PEN LADY ZORRO SERIES
Originally introduced from Matt Wagner’s epic Zorro Rides Again epic series, comes Lady Zorro #1 this July from Dynamite Entertainment! The series is written by Alex De Campi, working with Dynamite for the first time. Lady Zorro #1 is drawn by Rey Villegas and has a beautiful cover by Joseph Michael Linsner. Other cover incentives include a Steampunk cover by Sergio Fernandez Davila and a special retailer shared exclusive variant cover by Joseph Cooper!
“I’m thrilled to be able to take on Lady Zorro,” says writer Alex De Campi. “She’s such a clean slate, having only appeared in three issues of the main Zorro book, and as a kid who grew up devouring swashbuckling adventure stories, being able to have my own lady heroine with a sword is like a dream come true. For those that don’t know much about her, she’s a Spanish gal whose family was killed by soldiers and, burning with vengeance, she decides she will become… a fox (Zorro means “fox” in Spanish). Unlike the noble, never-kills-if-he-can-help-it Zorro, Lady Zorro is a bit more bloodthirsty. We’re joining her in exile up the coast of California, where she is cultivating roses… and forgiveness.”
